Our Projects

Commercial & Industrial Projects

Tourism plays a major role in our local economy. Cherenzia Excavation continues to be a part of this large industry by its part in the construction of several major projects. These projects include area golf course expansions and new construction. We participated in the construction of the world's largest casino, Foxwoods, and were the site contractor for the expansion of Mystic Marinelife Aquarium.

Cherenzia Excavation has also served the retail business community. We have worked for national giants such as BJ's Wholesale, A&P Supermarket, Home Depot, and Wal-Mart. Some projects have included the demolition of old stores to new construction on an 88-acre site.

Ocean House Site work and utilities: The Ocean House is a historic landmark in Watch Hill, RI. Following the complete demolition of the existing building, the site was excavated to accommodate a new sewer system and foundations. The sewer system included 11 fiberglass tanks ranging from 200 gallons to 50,000 gallons. A 30-foot tall cut adjacent to the building foundation was soil nailed. Rock was processed on-site to meet strict job specification requirements.
